Awesome Things about Look3, in No Particular Order


I just returned from three (was meant to be four... thanks a lot American Airlines) days in quaint, charming and lush Charlottesville, Virginia and the fabulous Look3 Festival of the Photograph. Look3's motto is "Peace. Love. Photography." and they do a great job at celebrating all three. Here's a list of some highlights, in no particular order:

- Lynsey Addario's heart-wrenching and inspiring presentation of the work she has done on women's issues over the last 15 years.

- Robin Schwartz's presentation of "Amelia's World": Portraits of her daughter with various animals. Her daughter has a magical gift for connecting with animals.

- Camille Seaman's wonderful telling of venturing into the world of Arctic and Antarctic photography, and how we are all connected in this world. So inspiring!

- Sitting under the stars, drinking a miniature boxed wine (think grown up juice box) with David Laidler, Alyssa Coppelman, Timothy Archibald, Andrew Hetherington, Jennifer Whitney and others.

- Piling into a bus with 19 other people to go from the Razon party to the Luceo Images party.

- Burgers and meeting the rest of the Prime Collective members

- Timothy Archibald's fantastic "Echolilia" project, in which he and his autistic son embark on a photographic journey together

- Simon Norfolk's Astra3B series

- Swimming in the river on our last day, while a bunch of baptisms were performed right behind us.

'Til next year everyone!
